Occupy Chicago began its occupation on September 23rd, 2011 at Jackson and LaSalle in the heart of the financial district. There was tension with Chicago Police almost instantly but there were eventually some concessions given to the group by Chicago Police. Members of Occupy Chicago decided to post an open letter to Chicago Police and this sparked a debate within the OccupyChicago camp. This is a conversation between First Voice co-producer Ze Garcia and "Sam" who wrote a response to the open letter.
